Content I Write

Ideas and Pitches I Wrote

What If We Only Treated the Symptoms?

Drawing the reader in with hypothetical scenarios supposing that we focused our lung cancer research primarily on ways to help patients breathe more freely; our HIV research on how to help victims gain more weight; our heart disease research on how to relieve swelling of the ankles. Yet this is precisely what we do with autism instead of focusing on genetic, environmental, or other possible causations that could ultimately lead to effective prevention or cure.

Emergency Response and the Power of Mobile

Social media can help or harm in an emergency. Responders can leverage big data to target needs and emergency management can push a message instantly instead of waiting for traditional media. Yet social media also introduces factors that can make responders' jobs more difficult and spread panic and disinformation. There are strategies that can minimize these issues and dedicated tech solutions that maximize mobile power while avoiding social media pitfalls in a crisis.

Interpreting Help For Medical Needs

Many hospitals ignore policies requiring them to keep qualified medical translators on staff. Medical interpretation is critical for patient wellbeing. In addition, patients need sometime who shares their understanding and health care beliefs, can help them form a liason with health care professionals, and who understands their values. Translation is best when done by one who speaks both the target language and the language of medicine.
